    I agree with this. This is one of the Republican Party's many good shots it has to win the next election.

    Ron Paul already suggested it but was rewarded with silence from the Republican Party.

    Besides, the US Gov't gets too much money shipping that stuff in themselves and laundering the money through US Banks to be legalizing it.

    Given the present intellectual prowess demonstrated by the GOP I think they are all heavy users.

    I doubt pot is their drug of choice..I'm thinkin it's oxyconton washed down with a lot of bourbon or gin.

    On a side note Washington state believes it's new legalized pot law will bring $500 million to the state through taxation of sales and growing pot per year. That's a lot of money. Our state budget is arourd 33 billion and recently they had to cut back around a billion in services. This pot money will help immensely. The "Tourism" industry is also looking at the new law as we are expecting a lot of people coming here to get high legally which will bring a lot more money to the hotels and take out food industries. The pizza places should do well. :lol:

    I think their biggest issue is getting through to immigrant groups without pandering to them and promising all the freebies under the sun like the democrats do. It is possible, the Conservative government in Canada has done it with great success.

    And yes, get rid of prohibition of at least the herb, it's a failed exercise in futility.
